Manuscript Submission Deadline 30 November 2022

3D printing, also named additive manufacturing, has made great development in the past few years. 3D printing technology has been promoted as one of the most efficient ways for rapid manufacturing of complex geometric components according to computer designs. 3D printing has serial advantages compared with traditional moldings, such as high precision, low material waste, and customized manufacturing. Suitable material selection was one of the most important parts of 3D printing. Non-metal materials have been used as biomaterial, carbon-based material, ceramics, organic glass, colloidal material and energy material for a long time. Non-metal materials such as polymeric composite materials also have properties and performance suitable for 3D printing, and have great potential applications in fields like biomedical, aerospace engineering, electronics, fiber and film.

This Research Topic will focus on the recent progress in 3D printing technology, including new non-metal materials, novel printing strategies, and recent applications. Recently the discovery of new non-metal materials for 3D printing, such as new fiber/film polymeric composites, photocurable resin, polyacrylamide gel, biomaterial, carbon-based material, ceramics, organic glass, colloidal materials and energy materials and et al. Lately development of 3D printing methodologies, such as fused deposition modeling (FDM), selective laser sintering (SLS), inkjet 3D printing, poly jet 3Dprinting, stereo lithography appearance (SLA), 3D plotting (3DP), laminated object manufacturing (LOM), directed energy deposition (DED), ceramic inkjet printing, fused deposition of ceramics (FDC), direct ink writing (DIW), selective laser melting (SLM) and et al. Newly applications of 3D printing in biomedical, aerospace engineering, electronics, fibers and films. This Research Topic aims to give an overview of 3D printing technology, understand the limitation, and expand the applications in scientific research and industry.

This Research Topic welcomes Original Research, Review, Mini-review and Perspective articles on the recent progress in 3D printing technology of non-metal material. Contributions may include, but are not limited to:
• New non-metal material synthesis, manufacturing
• New non-metal material characterization, testing, inspection
• New non-metal material evaluation, recyclability evaluation
• New non-metal material application.
• Functional non-metal material
• New non-metal material in fiber, film, resin, organic-hydrogel, colloid, ceramics, organic glass, biomaterial, energy material
• Novel 3D printing methodologies of non-metal material.
• Recent applications of 3D printing technology with non-metal material

Keywords: 3D Printing, Non-Metal Material, Polymer Composite Material, Energy Material, Biomaterial
